    • PRIVATE MESSAGING - IMPORTANT NOTICE   01/02/2017

      There has been some confusion regarding the Messaging System on PalmTalk - and what is private and what is posted publicly. I've been asked to explain the two. There are two forms of messages - what I will call "Private Messages" which are Private, and "Activity Messages" which are public. A Private Message is designated with an envelope icon. It is available at the top of every page (click it and use "Compose New"). It is also accessible by hovering over a User's name or Avatar and clicking the envelope icon. Or it is also available on a User's Profile Page - at the top - again, with the envelope icon. Anywhere you see this envelope icon, you can click it and send a Private Message. An "Activity Message" is public. These are the "What's on your Mind" and "Leave a Message on [User X's] Feed" boxes where you can leave a public message directly as a Status Update (on your Profile or Main PT Page) or on a User's Profile Page - which updates his Status Update and also posts on PT's Main Status Update Page. These are "Activities" and labeled as such on the Profile Pages.  What is confusing is that both options (Private and Activity) are available on a User's Profile Page.  Just remember, that if you want to send a Private Message, use the envelope icon link - wherever you see it. That will get you to the Private Messaging Center. Any other "Status Update," like "What's on your Mind," or "Leave a Message on [so-and-so's] Feed," is public. I would make it less confusing if I could, but I can't.

Brantley Palms

5 posts in this topic

Bryant Brantley has some great deals on fields of Butia odorata palms. He has started venturing into other cold hardy palms as well. He gave me a great deal on a nice field dug trunking Trachyocarpus fortunei and threw in some extra potted palms as well. He was a genuinely nice guy who was a pleasure to do businesswith. He hand dug, wrapped, and tractor loaded my palm with a lot of expertise. ..almost no roots were cut in the process. He is located in Perry Florida on some nice farmland.

So far I've bought one palm from Bryant. It looked great, as described and he was quick to update me on shipment. As David said, he's widening his inventory and has quite some interesting plants for us cold hardy gardeners, including one hybrid palm which you most likely wont find anywhere else! I'll definitely be buying again, especially if more hybrids are included B)

Thank you! I am working hard on expanding my inventory and into more hybrids as well.

    • I really tried to keep my Bizzy warm.
      By Duppy
      So, we had a forecast of mid 20's with 20 mph winds.  I have a lot of money and effort invested in my Bizzy so I decided I was going to build a greenhouse for it.  100$ of special ordered four hole pvc joints, pvc pipe, 1000 ft roll of shrink wrap, and 3 mil tarp.  Spent the afternoon building and gluing together a 6'x8'x8' BEEFY pvc frame, covered it with tarp and used all 1000ft of shrink wrap around the whole thing.  Put stakes in the ground and ran cord back and forth across the top until I was comfortable it was secure, stuffed some Christmas lights into it and quite happy with myself, went inside.  The winds came at 10pm and I went out at 10:30 to check on my accomplishment.  It was gone! The 8ft sail I had created did what sails do, caught the wind and went!  In a panic, all I could do was wrap the Christmas lights around the trunk to maybe, MAYBE save the bud.  We saw 17 degree wind chill that night and I pretty much conceded that my Bizzy was a loss. 
      That was 3 weeks ago and here is the damage thus far.  Only 1 frond is a complete loss with another partial.  Everything else seems to be ok. It's even opening another.  We also saw an overnight ambient temp of 16 degrees a week ago and so far, no additional damage. All the segments feel soft like a healthy segment should, I could tell which ones took damage initially as they felt dry and almost brittle.

      The pvc posts in the ground are what my greenhouse slid down over for additional non existent support. It was supposed to be removable when temps weren't so bad, then I could just slide it down on the posts again.
      As you can see in the 2nd pic background.  My mules said "Oh, did it get cold?"
      Edit: I did find my greenhouse the next morning, about 200 yards away caught in a neighbors fence.



    • Palms & Snow
      By Pal Meir
      Inspired by the weather today I picled up a couple of older photos with palms in or under snow. The first photos show a Chamaerops (*1980) and a Trachycarpus wagnerianus (*2003); …




    • "Ice ice baby"
      By Ponds & Palms
      Lots of ice build up on my palms in NC. This is nothing new though...I once had all the fronds straight down, vertical...they recovered just fine.  First year for my needle palm, and the cover blew off last night we'll see how that turns out


    • Let's see how this works out.
      By Laaz
      Just got a nice bunch of Acrocomia seeds. Removed them from the outer shell. Now to soak in GA3 for a week & seed if I can speed up germination. Anyone else have experience with this?
    • 2 Chamaerops humilis, discounted!!
      By Ponds & Palms
      This time of year is a good time to look for deals on tropicals and Palms! I just got 2 Chamaerops humilis VERY large with pups for $40 a piece it was 1/2 price! I'm keeping them in my greenhouse until spring.  Just wanted to say keep an eye out for discounted plants! Call local garden centers to see if they have deals this time of year, you might be surprised!
